Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In its second season, HBO's Flight of the Conchords soars to new heights even as Bret (McKenzie) and Jemaine (Clement), the down, but never quite out New Zealand digi-folk duo living beyond the fringe in New York City, reach new lows. In one episode, Bret's purchase of "A New Cup," puts them in dire financial straits and leads Jemaine into prostitution, albeit part time. In "New Zealand Town," the boys play a gig in which the majority of the audience is shopping bags. Each episode follows a week in their "rags to rags story," and each episode brings them back to square one. The only thing less promising than their musical career is their love lives. In "Unnatural Love," Jermaine accidentally sleeps with--horrors--an Australian. In "Prime Minister," he becomes involved with a woman who's got a thing for Art Garfunkel impersonators, only to lose her to the real thing (here's to you, Mr. Garfunkel, who cameos). Of course, there's always Mel (the wonderful Kristen Schaal), the group's No. 1 (and only) fan.

This series dances to its own deadpan drummer. You've got to love the loopiness of a line like, "So we look like some Simon and Garfunkel look-alikes who don't look like Simon and Garfunkel." The boys used up their tried and true "A" musical material in the first season, but while the songs this season are not as inspired, there are some offbeat candidates for a greatest-hits collection, including "Carol Brown," something of an homage to Paul Simon's "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover," and the should-be-forbidden dance "Sugalumps." Fans of Andy Samberg's Lonely Island digital shorts will especially enjoy the balmy duet "We're Both in Love with a Sexy Lady" in the episode "Love is the Weapon of Choice." That sexy lady, by the way, is Emmy-nominee and SNL MVP Kristen Wiig, as a woman with an epileptic dog and who unwittingly plays havoc with Bret and Jemaine's friendship. Other nifty bits of casting that add to Flight of the Conchords' cool cachet are Mary Lynn Rajskub as the "garfunkeling" groupie, Patton Oswalt as an Elton John impersonator, and Lucy Loveless as the aide and unrequited crush of the New Zealand prime minister. The season does not end on a promising note for Bret and Jemaine (it's really back to square one in the cliffhanger), but as their hapless manager, Murray (the Emmy-worthy Rhys Darby) remarks at one point, hopefully, this is just the beginning of their story. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Season Two's brilliance needed time to sink in! July 8, 2009
By Marlee
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My whole family fell in love with Brett and Jermaine in Season One. We couldn't wait for Season Two to start on HBO and I admit,we were a little disappointed in a few of the episodes. However, after the season ended, I watched all the episodes several times again on HBO "On Demand" in April and was shocked at how fabulous some of the episodes that I thought I didn't like were. I ended up LOVING Season Two. My favorite episode is still Unnatural Love where Jermaine dates the Australian girl...Too Many [...] on the Dance Floor and Carol Brown are great, creative, funny songs! The Cup and the Tough Bretts are other great episodes. Have fun! You'll enjoy good intellectual humor with any of the Conchords Seasons DVD's. I can't wait to get mine!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Keep calm... jump out the window" ... September 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not sure what is up with all the bad reviews. Still a funny unique show, better than most shows even on a less successful episode. Glad that Jemaine, Bret, and Rhys got another season. Maybe they used up a lot of ideas the first season but I still enjoyed the Austrailian girlfriend Keitha, Epileptic dog benefit, Jemaine selling himself in the street, guys discovering hair gel, and their final tragic downfall.

Favorite songs amoung the parodies ... should be dance floor classic "Too Many Dicks On the Dance Floor", the dead on synth pop video "Fashion is Danger", the sensitive rap track "Hurt Feelings".

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny August 21, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved Season 1 of this offbeat, sharp, and charming show. The reviewers here who disparage the second season mystify me. This was mostly fine stuff. Season 2 offers some higher highs and some lower lows than Season 1, thereby creating a package that is about as good, but this set has two episodes far beyond anything done in the first season. Love Is the Weapon of Choice and Prime Minister can stand against any TV comedy anywhere. Other episodes, especially the first, were as good as any from Season 1. But these two especially were biting, frightfully clever, well plotted, and full of surprises. They are the most entertaining video I've seen in a long time. The Japanese karaoke was brilliant. I watched it twice in two days and, if anything, it was funnier the second day.

Unfortunately, these two sparkling gems are followed by two undistinguished rocks that probably looked funny during the creation, but failed badly to amuse and sink like, well, stones. Predictable, tedious, and ugly, they overstayed their welcome long before their completely expected conclusions. (And having a guest star adds nothing if the tale stinks.) When making a story about lovable losers, the characters cannot be too lovable, nor can they be too pitiful. There is a delicate balance when the foolishness is just enough to be plausible but not too much to make us groan. These episodes crossed that line repeatedly.

Four hours of glorious quality in five hours of material is a good deal. The deleted scenes were hilarious...good enough to stand on their own! Snap it up and enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars One season show? September 5, 2009
By J & A
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched season one and love this show. I was excited when they released the DVD of season two, and ordered it immediately. However, I was disappointed by it. They lack funny songs that were the core of their 1st season show. The songs that they have are painfully weak, and are not even close to the quality of the ones on the first season. It is as if they were working for years on the few songs they had, and used them all up on the first season. That said, it is still a good show. Just don't think you'll be getting the Flight of the Conchords that you saw on season one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow--this is what I call performance art! July 30, 2009
Format:DVD
I can think of other excellent comedy duos. I can think of other musical duos which I really enjoy and put on my ipod. I can think of other performance artists who do leading edge work which is visually experimental. I cannot think of any other duo, either currently or in the past, who can do all three and do them all well. The only act this even sort of reminds of is Martin & Lewis because Dean Martin could sing and their comedy was pretty good for its day. I wouldn't go so far as to call Martin & Lewis's work performance art though. Other than Martin & Lewis, I can't think of anyone else like these guys at all.

Why are viewers here debating season 1 versus season 2? This is not remotely like anything else out there and it is so innovative that I can scarcely believe that it survived for a second season. If it had been on anything but HBO I think it would have been too leading edge and been cancelled after the first season. I'm not comparing the two; I am in grovel mode that there were two seasons!

Ok, here is the premise. There are two musicians from New Zealand who come to New York City (of all places) to break into the entertainment world as musicians. Their manager works for the New Zealand Commission in New York City and that job is such a no brainer that he basically can do whatever he wants with his time. The band has exactly one fan, a woman. The only reason she is a fan is that she has the hots for Bret. The guys are poor as can be. They live together in a subsistence lifestyle. And they are complete nerds on top of everything else. At first I liked Bret best because (being a woman), I found him cuter. But Jemaine has grown on me and I've gotten past his awful glasses and sideburns ('70s style sideburns). Their manager I find positively uproarious.

I think after all the criticism they got for no extras on the 1st season, they owe it us fans big time. Maybe the Mother of all extras.

FOTC Season 2 DVD - Sound Quality?
I also have noticed this and it's very annoying. I can't here the lyrics on any of the songs from the first 3 episodes. I haven't watched the rest of disc one yet.
